People have made this point in comments and elsewhere, and while I have no idea if people are currently draining their bank accounts and putting the money in their mattresses, but generally speaking it was a really bad idea for Bush and McCain to get on the teevee and inform the country that the financial system was about to collapse and that (in McCain's version) we could be in a Depression by Monday. We've all seen It's A Wonderful Life.

Admittedly the Director's Cut ending is better.
